Schedule and Palettes :: Anoka Area Photographer

Hey there. 🙂 Tonight I’m just poppin’ in for a couple of random, photography update, quickies. First of all…my schedule is changing a bit in the upcoming future. I will not be scheduling new clients from August, through the turn of the year. Also, I will not be scheduling any weddings, even if you’re my…

Rebecca and the Girls :: Twin Cities Family Photography

One of my absolute favorite things about being a family photographer, is having the ability to watch my families grow.  It’s so noticeable when you only work together on an annual basis–and, it’s even more noticeable when you go back to the same location after shooting there three years prior. The first few photos are…

Harrison { Twin Cities Family Photographer }

Today, I got to meet Harrison. He was calm, and alert, and so very, very, handsome. He liked to watch everything that his little eyes could make out, and he liked to listen just as much. Today, I also got to witness the very beginnings of a brand new family. They were born into this…

Breyanna’s Senior Photos { Saint Paul Minnesota Photographer }

I’ve always thought that fashion photography would be a good niche for me–it’s not something I can really pursue right now, but, maybe someday. Then, Saturday’s Senior Session happened and the urge hit again–that was when I got to photograph Breyanna–she played right into the fashion photographer in me. This girl brought the dresses. (Also,…

2015 Personal Favorites :: Minnesota Photographer

As promised, here is a collection of my favorite, personal, photos from 2015. Also…there’s not much to see here. In the past ten years, this was my second worst year for personal work. It’s not for lack of creativity…it’s more for these two reasons: one, I spend a ton of my time photographing for others;…

Jake’s Senior Photos :: Photographer in Anoka

Literally, every time I photograph something, it’s my favorite.  I shoot a wedding and wedding’s are my favorite.  I shoot families, families are my favorite.  I shoot an engagement, and they’re my favorite.  I shoot models, and models are my favorite.   (Clearly, mixing up what I shoot, keeps me excited.)   However, if you…

Anoka Headshots :: Male Portrait Photography

Client post!  I spose I have to take a quick break, here and there, from my regular posts to show off my clients, huh?  A few weeks back I posted a photo blog about the Saint Michael Head Shot Session, I did.  Well, sure enough, the beard came off and here we are, again.  This…

Updated Head Shots :: Saint Michael Photography

Okay…so, we played around a bit and maybe got a little more than just a couple of head shots, BUT when a bearded musician, with the dream of putting together a non-profit to bring music to kids says, ‘Hey, Mel, I need some head shots–you up for it?’  I say…of course.  Obviously.  I think they…

Photography Meets Video :: Anoka Area Photographer

Anyone passionate about their career always craves learning more about it.  I see new techniques being used and I need to know how to do it too, I want to try anything I can get my hands on, I love to network, I am on a mission to meet all of my biggest inspirations, and…

Engagement Photos and a Mini Road Trip :: Howard Lake Area Photography

So…I’m pretty sure I’ve said it a time, or twenty–but, being a photographer is pretty cool.  Sure, like any job, there are favorite parts, and not-so-favorite parts of course; but, when you get to do your favorite part, it makes all the rest pretty okay.  This past weekend–all my favorites combined.  A favorite, long-time, friend…
